Beyond A Veiled Reflection (Anachronistic Dimensions Book 2) by Christine Church takes us on a journey into a different dimension. Famous rock-star Dane and his beautiful wife Meirah are from two totally different worlds and yet their love has transcended time, incarnations and differing dimensions. After Dane and Meirah were first finally united in the dimension of Mikaire, life as husband and wife, on earth, has been wonderful. But, danger lurks in the form of someone they thought was long gone and destroyed. Meirah’s former betrothed, Kaeplan, is still alive and still planning to have Meirah as his Queen and bride, in his newly created dimension of Almareyah. It is the drinking of Dane’s blood that can give Kaeplan unlimited wizard powers to change time, to change dimensions and to ensure Meirah’s obedience and subservience to him. Dane and Meirah are in a race against time to defeat Kaeplan before he succeeds in his evil intents.
Although Beyond a Veiled Reflection (Anachronistic Dimensions Book 2) is the second book in this series, it stands alone and you definitely do not have to have read the first story to enjoy the second. Author Christine Church does a superb job of dropping in relevant information to allow you to understand how the characters ended up where they are. A cross between Science Fiction and Fantasy, this story captured my imagination from the very beginning. The idea of an eternal love that crosses time, lives, and dimensions, I found immensely appealing and in this author’s skilled hands, was an excellent and satisfying story. The three main characters were all sharply drawn almost to the point of caricature; the self-indulgent, slightly destructive, rock-star; the evil and lacking any humanity, wizard; and, of course, the beautiful woman who would not let go of a love that had spanned generations and dimensions. Yet, the author still managed to skilfully weave a wonderful story full of excitement, action, and heart-felt romance. The litmus test for any story in a series is; “would I read the next instalment?” In the case of this book, the answer is a resounding YES! This is a great read and one I highly recommend to fans of the genre.
